QS WORLD UNIVERSITY RANKINGS

The QS World University Rankings currently consider over 2,000 and evaluate over 700 universities in the world, ranking the top 400. QS World University Rankings claim to be more independent than other rankings because peer review is an important factor in their research. Part of the ranking is based on hard data (faculty/student ratio, citations per faculty, proportion of international students by faculty). Another, important, part is based on data obtained from two large global surveys – one among academics and another among employers (academic reputation, employer reputation).
